6:17 pm
no delay in getting to the forecast tonight. >> paul deanno would like to say an unexpected four-letter word. >> a lot of choices there. >> rain. >> we have bonus rainfall out there. think positive here. bonus rainfall on the radar. many of you may not be using the word bonus to describe the rain in the south bay. on the radio kcbs traffic reports every 10 minutes, it's been a mess all around san jose. and it's all because of the rain. the rain is letting up. but you have had showers around all day long in the south bay now finally getting a break in sunnyvale, milpitas, san jose. further north livermore still getting a few showers, san ramon dublin and pleasanton drying out. san jose wet all day long third of an inch of rainfall your high today was in the mid-50s. we hit the low 60s without rainfall in oakland. half moon bay 60. napa, concord and redwood city all hit the upper 50s. so what happened? we were supposed to be drying out.
6:18 pm
that's because this low pressure area spinning right there was supposed to be about 300 miles farther south. it didn't move so it is still continuing to feed moisture in our direction. remember winds flow counterclockwise around low pressure so when it's down to the south we are getting the moisture coming up in the south. it didn't move, so guess what the showers didn't, either. now it looks like that low pressure area will still be close to us tomorrow. so weather can't rule out showers especially toward the south bay once again for your friday and then on sunday, we'll have another chance of showers. then all of that stuff gets pushed out of the way by this area of high pressure. but it's going to stay off to our west:winds go clockwise around high pressure so we follow the arrows coming down from the north. it will be sunny next week but it's also going to be chilly. we'll have lows in the 30s and highs only in the low to mid- 50s. so showers tonight especially down toward the south bay. another chance of showers on friday. another slight chance of showers on sunday, not heavy. that pattern change next week will dry us out and cool us down. tomorrow despite the cloud cover that southerly influence
6:19 pm
will get us into the low 60s, oakland averaging 58 tomorrow will hit 62. in the city 59. concord you'll hit 60. mountain view 62. fairfield for your friday, hey, friday, 61 degrees. saturday cloudy, but dry. sunday morning we get that chance of showers. look at that dip in temperature. low 50s on sunday. and then mainly sunny skies for much of next week. so if you have been looking for the rainfall and coming up empty for much of january, perhaps some bonus rainfall in the backyard today. >> making up for lost time. >> we lost a lot of time in january. yes. >> paul, thanks ♪ [ music ]♪ i'm ken bastida live in san mateo. you have heard of the raider nation? well, you're going to meet the 9er empire. that's coming up.

of course, not all of it is d you care? bowl merchandise is starting to hit the stores, streets, and the net. of course, not all of it is legal. but should you care? cbs 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts on the real differences between genuine and counterfeit. reporter: it's the closest many of us will come to colin kaepernick. >> i'll take that. >> reporter: many 9ers fans are shelling out big bucks for the official super bowl gear that hit stores this morning. >> i got championship nfc. >> picture of colin kaepernick. >> reporter: look around downtown these days and you'll also see piles of shirts for sale in the streets. shirts this vendor told us were licensed nfl gear. you say these are official, right? >> yeah. >> reporter: so we bought a few for 10 bucks apiece and took them to u.s. customs for an inspection. >> this is just a basic really cheap t-shirt. >> reporter: the verdict? >> definitely not a name brand. no nfl logos on it.
6:45 pm
nothing to say it's an official product. >> reporter: so what makes sports merchandise official? well, a hologram, tags, a higher price, and the fact that the nfl gets a cut, about $1.50 on every $30 t-shirt money split between all 32 franchises. >> super bowl shirts here! >> reporter: so while you may be saving on the knockoff you're not necessarily supporting your team and considering the quality, you may end up paying more in the long run. >> downside is you're not getting a genuine product. the quality is probably not good. there may be chemicals that are not approved to be used. >> reporter: counterfeit shirts can also have misspellings. we bought one that came complete with a stain. it is illegal to buy a counterfeit in some cities if you know it's a counterfeit. so buyer beware. >> what about here? >> here, well, it's kind of questionable.
6:46 pm
are they going to prosecute? no. is it legal to buy counterfeit? not really if you know it's a counterfeit because now you're breaking the law but you're probably not going to be prosecuted. >> it's too good to be true might be counterfeit. >> reporter: if it's 10 bucks for a 9ers shirt it's probably counterfeit. >> or if they can't spell it's a sign it's counterfeit. >> thank you. here's a little bit of rain out there today. and we'll try to contain that look of surprise. but that's just what happens sometimes is, you know, with those little cutoff lows and they just have a mind of their own. >> 'tis the season second half of winter first half of spring we get low pressure areas cut off from the main flow of the jet stream and you get some rain. i didn't hear about that yesterday? you didn't. but it arrived today. i'm happy to report that this evening is i drew he for you if you are heading out and about. the radar really clearing out. this is a four-hour time lapse. notice things much drier now for the south bay, san jose up toward livermore along 680 we're dry but we had plenty of rainfall today. about .4" of rainfall. but it's not rain, it's snow
6:47 pm
that i want to show you. snow, how is there a super bowl connection to this video? well, snowfall in baltimore, maryland. i want to show you that video if we have it. thumbs up, thumbs down? i'm assuming by it not being on television right now that we don't have it. so we'll just talk about snowfall in baltimore. it was snow in baltimore, maryland. there's your super bowl connection. and there's more snowfall in the forecast for tomorrow. baltimore cold, windy, snowy, 26. we'll have a high near 60 but check out new orleans. sunshine and high of 74 degrees. that's the place to be, big game nine days away. right now in concord, 53. oakland 58 with that rainfall out of there. san jose up two degrees over the past hour currently 54 degrees. satellite and radar review shows you this cutoff area of low pressure. we call it a cutoff low because it's cutted off from the main flow of the jet stream that acts like a path of least resistance and most storms or low pressure areas follow this path. this one is stubborn away from that so cutoff areas of low pressure will often take their
6:48 pm
own path which is often different from what computer models think and that is the case. it was supposed to be farther to the south. it's not. so it's still feeding in moisture to the bay area so we had showers in the south bay today, south and east of san francisco. showers early tomorrow as well especially towards san jose and gilroy. now, as we head toward next week, there is another pattern change. gone will be the low pressure area. high pressure, but it's the location that's key. it's off to our west. so we'll get sunshine with a cool northerly flow keeping us below normal temperature-wise for several days beginning on sunday. so showers still out there for some of you south and east of san francisco. you will have showers around mainly to the south tomorrow. and also on sunday. that pattern change bringing back mainly sunny skies. we'll be there but not until the top of next week. here's your forecast for tomorrow. in the city 59 degrees. livermore 60. san jose 62. low 60s for redwood city. mountain view, fremont, san jose, low 60s also for pleasanton, antioch and
6:49 pm
concord. you will hit 60 tomorrow in concord. late-day sunshine for bodega bay 58. extended forecast we are dry on saturday but cloudy. sunday much cooler, slight chance of a shower low 50s for highs. and here comes the sunshine. monday through thursday of next week, we likely will make it back to 60 degrees by next wednesday. sports is coming up next. but before we go, here are some more pictures of the 9ers fans all throughout the bay area. be right back. raught in the bay

over... for the first time since 1997 the warriors had a player recognized by the league... david lee is the f the nba all-star drought in the bay area is over. for the first time since 1997 the warriors had a player recognized by the league. david lee is the first to do it since latrelle sprewell. power forward averaging more than 19 points and 10 rebounds per game and has led golden state to the fifth best record in the western conference. now the bad news. steph curry was snubbed and won't go to houston. former raider wideout tim brown made news on tuesday when he said that head coach bill callahan sabotaged the super bowl in 2002 by changing the
6:53 pm
game plan two days before. many of his teammates strongly disagreed but jerry rice wasn't one of them. >> we had planned on running the ball. we had been averaging over 300 yards. we had tyrone wheatley, zach crockett, charlie gunnar and that was the plan that we had. and i think everybody was caught off guard. i'm not going to say he sabotaged the super bowl, but you look at it either way, if you change the game plan on a friday like that, you call it whatever you want to call it. >> sticking to his guns. the packers couldn't do it nor could the falcons. now it's the ravens' turn to figure out how to stop colin kaepernick and the offense. >> he is fast and can run but rg iii was a little quicker i think, you know, and probably a little faster. >> it hasn't taken long for teams to give the 49ers offense
6:54 pm
the respect it deserves. it's a much different story for ravens quarterback joe flacco who beat andrew luck, peyton manning and tom brady to get to the super bowl. >> finally getting to the big dance, get the respect you should have gotten a while ago? >> i really don't care. you know, there's guys out there that have to make a living hitting on somebody. if that's me, then i play on being around for a while. if you want to continue to do it, i'll be whoer. >> no interceptions in this post-season for flacco. 31 years ago the 49ers made their first trip to the super bowl. dwight clark's catch got them there. but it was the defense that won it. the cincinnati bengals were trailing san francisco 20-7 in the 3rd quarter when the san francisco defense turned him away on the goal line four straight downs. it's considered the greatest defensive stand in team history and linebacker dan was at the center of everything. >> does a day go by this time
6:55 pm
of year when people don't ask you about that hit? >> well, no. a lot of kids want to talk about it. everybody knows where they were if you are a 49er fan or if you watched any of the super bowl, they know exactly what they were doing. i was even in europe a couple of years ago and people are telling me i know exactly where i was when you made that play. i was glad to be part of that goal line stand. >> i read where you guys at least the first down and maybe the second only had 10 players on the field? >> yeah. it was tina turner kind of got mixed up and he wasn't out there and fortunately, even with tim, we stopped them and it was a tribute to our defense because we had some guys that came from offense. he was an offensive guy and we had been bad for so long, i mean, we hadn't been winners really. and this was our first chance to win. and it was really exciting to
6:56 pm
go from the worst to the best that year. >> and pretty amazing. chuck studly the defensive coordinator and there's keena. you're supposed to be on the field. he was finally there for the 3rd and 4th downs. >> shocking when you said it was 31 years ago and i thought that can't be right! it is right. >> yeah.
